Maybe that's what killed my 576. The HDMI board has failed and is not repairable and would cost a fortune to replace. And now the PS is playing up with it occasionally going into an on/off cycle when powered off that can last a minute or two.

Time to replace it I think.

There's a link here somewhere man about the capacitors going on that hdmi board and this leading to connection problems. So yeah, I suspect that's what has done it. What I don't know is if the later models have improved in this aspect.

The Onkyo's offer the best bang for buck in my opinion. They offer more hdmi inputs for example than comparative units. Somewhere, somehow, there's probably a reason for that.

Just put a fan in your AV cabinet. It actually took me a LOT of time to do it myself, there's a guy on ebay that sells kits that would be much quicker and cost about the same.

Mine btw was a solid state relay, activated by the USB from the TV turning on, which then switched power to two 140mm fans (one for each section of my cabinet). I used a variable voltage power supply to control the speed manually, but even on low speed it works really well. I put in into a case with nice connectors, but the wiring inside is pretty dodgy... it'll fail one day and i'll have to do it properly. There's a thread on it somewhere.

The 576 was notorious for blowing the HDMI output circuit. I had the same problem with my re-designed 507. Guys at Avalon AV said it was really rare to see that problem on the 507. I was lucky as I was still under warranty.
But with Onkyo's running that bit hotter I have fans mounted in my cabinet to keep it to a tolerable temperature.

I had all 6 caps replaced and it didn't make any difference so the problem is more complex I suspect.

Next AVR won't be an Onkyo though. They just have some design flaws in them.
